    There is an amazing lack of information about them on the Internet.

    In this day and age, that is strange.

    I dont know them but when I get potential customers that dont know me I do several things to put them at ease. 1) I make their reservation and send them a copy of the confirmation. 2) I do a conference call with them to Wyndham so they can hear the wyndham reps identify me as an owner and verify tht the reservation actually exists, 3) at some of the resorts the staff knows me. I invite my customer to call the resort and ask if I can be trusted 3) I have sent folks copies of my deed. .

    if none of that works we cant do business...

    Actually, the only meaningful post when you google them is from someone whose reservation they cancelled.

    You can't judge someone from one post.

    Even to your inquiry, here and elsewhere, there is a lack of knowledge.

    What exactly are they?

    Timeshare owners making a buck off their ownership?

    Or, are they a "Resort", as their name implies?

    I'm leaning toward the former since there is so little about them on the Internet.

    From their home page: "We are one of the largest owners of Wyndham Timeshare in the US. We have over 186 luxurious properties throughout the USA. Why stay in a typical hotel room when you can relax in one of our 5-star resorts at a fraction of the cost? Our condos are your home away from home. These spacious condos feature separate bedrooms and living areas with fully equipped kitchens. All that’s missing is you and your family."

    So, do they own "condos", full-ownership, or ?????

    For some reason I feel like Madge should be involved.



    They might want to proof-check the testimonial on their website: ". . . we would have problem in recommending both the resort and Shelby . . . " (sic)

    "You may give a vacation to a friend or family member via the RCI Guest Certificate; however, you may not receive any compensation beyond the price of the exchange and Guest Certificate fees. Compensation includes anything of value . . . "

    Granted, as I was recently informed, I don't know how any of this works , but, unless "Shelby Resorts" owns all of the "condos" or "Weeks" that they provide, how can they make $$$ without violating RCI/Wyndham's policies?

    Wyndham points owners are allowed to rent reserations as far as I know. It's different then RCI

    So, even though it is (essentially) the same company, they are allowed to secure prime reservations, and rent them out for a profit?

    And use terminology that makes it appear they own the resort(s)?

    You would think that the same philosophy concerning raiding would prevail.

    Well, maybe not you, maybe me.
